Balasana
Practice of the Month

Balasana 

Balasana or Child’s Pose is yoga’s most important resting posture and it is a nice way to gently stretch various parts of your body.1 It’s a chance to stop what you are doing, reassess your position, reconnect with your breath, and prepare yourself to move forward.

Technique

Coming down to your knees and hands on a yoga mat. Now, spread your knees wider while keeping the tops of your feet and the big toes touching the floor. Then, allow your belly to rest between your thighs. Slowly bend your forehead to the floor. Now, relax and calm down, and let your shoulders, jawline and eyes release stress. Stretch your arms in front of you, moving the palms to the floor. You can also bring your arms to the backside facing the palms upwards. Inhale and exhale evenly and reconnect with your soul by focusing on your breathing. Remain in this posture for 5 minutes and then return to the sitting posture. Now slowly open your eyes. Rub your palms and place them on your eyes and face to feel the warmth.
Benefits

Balasana is easy to follow and is an extremely beneficial yoga posture that boosts flexibility and enhances muscle strength. Additionally, it tones your body and improves your breathing. It boosts digestion, stretches lower back, opens up your hips, stimulates blood circulation, strenthens ligaments and others.

Limitation

Avoid practicing Balasana if you have injured your neck, back or shoulder. If you suffer from severe knee and joint pains you should not do the asana.
